and advance our values in the modern world. >> let me turn to foreign policy. what should be done about syria, in your judgment? >> >> i mean, there is unspeakable slaughter going on there. >> unspeakable but nothing is being done, except supply arms to -- >> you have got three things going on, haven't you? you have got a challenge from the people to the government, that is how this all started. u have got sectarian conflicts between the diffent ommuties of syria with support from the different regional powers, iran, saudi, et cetera, and you have then got the geo politics, u.s. and uk on one side and russia on the other. i think the hole in the middle of this is what is a post as sad, assad syria going to look at, what is the political and security order of a post assad era on? >> you has mosni on the panel you need to get egypt, iran and others aund the tab. >> it seems me he is right, basically, because all of those four countries have got a buying interest and we have interests as well, so i think we -- >> you don't mind the idea of iran being part of that and saudi arabia? >> they alrea
the ball when it comes to foreign affairs and foreign policy. for him to admit, yep, there was a terrorist attack on my watch, we did have warnings and our ambassador was murdered, that's not helpful to his reelection campaign. >> brian: but he did say america was attacked. he didn't say september 11. he doesn't link it to terror, but he did say for the first time we were attacked on tuesday. >> steve: sure. so what's going on with the president? john sununu, great defender of presidential nominee mitt romney, he was on with hannity last night. he had this to say about the president's reaction. >> look, let me tell what you the big problem with this president is, in my opinion: he is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. when he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the c.i.a. and thinks he can just skim the summary paper on his ipad instead of sitting down and engaging in what i -- i was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day and i believe that bill clinton took
on foreign policy, releasing a scathing attack being the president's handling of mideast policy. here is the governor speaking with our carl cameron yesterday react being to the president's overall foreign policy and his recent comments about the violence. >> i think when the president said the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road, i think he badly misunderstandses the nature of what is happening in the middle east, not just the assassination of our diplomats but a muslim brotherhood leader becoming the president of egypt, 20,000 people being killed in syria, iran moving towards nuclear capability, the developments in the middle east are far from being bumps in the road. jon: joining us now former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., ambassador john bolt tops, also a fox news contributor and a mitt romney supporter i should add. we are joined by cia covert operations officer mike baker. welcome, gentlemen to goat of you. mr. ambassador, ahmadinejad was here last year, he was here the year before that, this was to be his last address to the u.n. general assembly as iran's
get our hands on the cables. after the election. this administration does not have a classic foreign policy or security or military policy or even domestic policy. everything is politics. rebound doesn't have a national security council, he has a poe lit bureau. everything is seen through the political lens. the president of libya was absolutely right. this was a pre-planned terror attack. he wants to fess up to the truth because his problem is the republican gate militias. he wants to crackdown. it is in his interest to tell the truth. he can go back to the white house, if you recall, jake carney, claiming we knew better what was happening in libya than the libyan president. having been an intelligence officer, for 22 year years, that is hogwash. >>neil: the more this runs up, the more the president can pass the buck. some say he just did it again today. cleverly. but how am i going to fund it? and i have to find a way to manage my cash flow better. [ female announcer ] our wells fargo bankers are here to listen, offer guidance and provide you with options tailored to your business.
on the september 11th attacks. he running for re-election, strongly on a foreign policy/national security platform because he cannot run on the economy, so if that is taken away from him, he's got nothing. that's why you're getting the lies. megyn: go ahead, kirsten. >> honestly, i would prefer lying over incompetence to be completely honest just as an american citizen who is concerned for my safety. the incompetence one is more damning. the fact that they have attacked cnn for finding this journal and using information in it that showed that the ambassador was fearing for his life from who? al-qaeda. when they've been telling us that the war on terror is dead because usama bin laden is dead. the fact that the state department didn't protect him knowing he had these concerns. these are things that are very troubling, the fact that they did not go to the scene of the crime, the terrorist attack, and recover anything that might fall into the hands of terrorrests that could be used against the united states, and instead cnn went to the scene. so there are so many things that are so troubling, um, tha
pattern on disingaugement on america's foreign policy. we're projecting weakness at a time we need to projecting strength. we're showing feebleness when we need to show resolve. i was amazed in the tick-tock on the call he made on the 12th of septem president that it was revealed that this was the first time the president had talk to the libyan president. i can't imagine that in this part of the world whether a new leader takes office that the president of the united states doesn't seem to understand how important that personal relationship is and didn't bother to call the president of libya when he was sworn into office earlier this summer. bill: one more thing. i just want to make this quick. i don't mean to cut you off but in interest of time here, where does this go, if anywhere? >> well, look, it's eating up time on the calendar if it had not happen we would be talking about economy, deficits, jobs and affordable care act. if mitt romney is going to use this successfully he needs not only to make this critique and point out this is broader frame as seeing the president disenga
. it is a reality in foreign policy we will have to deal with post arab spring. >>shepard: i read a couple of articles equating it to fire in a crowded theater, making the argument or should not be able to do something under freedom of speech that is absolutely going to insight violence and death. whether we get do that point, that is another matter entirely. >>guest: that is the issue. as much as all of us hate and abhor what the iranian president comes over and says, speaking publicly, in our country, saying horrible things, we respect his right to say them. we have to counter them through looking at the facts and refuting the statement he made denying the holocaust and things like that. that is a perfect example of why we believe that free speech has to win out. an irony of the egyptian leader is that he and many members of his organization, the muslim brotherhood, were thrown in prison for decades, because they were doing things like political speech. they want to be able to choose exactly which messages come out. that is the real danger of so-called "democracy" spreading through the m
? a key foreign policy victory of this administration was the killing of osama bin laden. and this summer at a fund-raiser, the president said al-qaeda is on the run and we got bin laden. well, as we said that july night, the part about al-qaeda on the run didn't look that way to us. al-qaeda linked militants were there on the libyan weapons obtained after the u.s. and nato intervention in that country and now that four americans have been killed in north africa by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in clas
happens in foreign policy. the arab spring is not something the u.s. necessarily has control over. >> that's right, anderson. we have to understand that. that said, our experience tells us whether it is the bombings or the "uss cole." in yemen, libya, because of a weak central government -- we know al qaeda has the wherewithal to take advantage of that and they look for safe havens around the world and it seems, it appears now that is what al qaeda was doing with libya, trying to insert itself where it was a weak space and take advantage of it to our great detriment and tragedy. >> fran townsend, appreciate your reporting with your sources. thank you very much. >>> in other news tonight -- >> in what was likely his last speech at the u.n. general assembly, mahmoud ahmadinejad called for a new world order. as he was speaking rudy giuliani was blasting president obama for not taking stronger action against iran. former mayor rudy giuliani joins me ahead. "like" the photos he's posting. oscar likes tom's photos, but he loves the access to tom's personal information. oscar's an identity thief
on national security, health care, on taxes, crisis management and overall foreign policy. double digit leads in that poll just released today. one of our go-to guys, peter hamby joins me from washington, one of our political reporters. peter hamby, give it to us bluntly. how bad is this particular poll for mitt romney? >> it is it is very, very bad brooke and one number you mentioned there, obama holds a 25-point lead among women which is a big gender gap we have seen in any poll between the two this cycle. ohio is the linchpin of any white house strategy. romney can still do it, though the needle he's threading becomes very, very thin if he does lose ohio. the question the political people are asking today is this lead actually ten points? or is it closer to what we have seen in previous polls, which is seven, six, five, four perhaps point lead for barack obama. a lot of republicans are criticizing the polls saying the gop is undersampled, democrats are being oversampled. if you talk to any republican in ohio, they'll admit to you they are losing the state they just say -- they point out th
americans like the ambassador, they took a turn. the economy is making headlines, foreign policy took center stage. no more so than this week with the u.n. assembly meeting. the death of bin laden is a campaign slogan, the obama team seems to think they have the republican candidates lacking. i find that hard to believe that the president, leader of the free world, talks to goldberg than benjamin netanyahu. david letterman over morsi. yesterday, one of the guests pointed out the two men will not vote in november, but those who did, could see through the campaigner-in-chief. understanding campaigning is part of the process, but worry more about doing the job if he wants to keep his job. well, that's my two cents more. that's all for continue's "willis report," and i'm cheryl casone in for gerri willis. thanks, everybody, for joining me and have a great night. ♪ lou: good evening, i'm lucina santiago. president-- i'm lou dobbs. president obama and mitt romney campaigning today, and both candidates on the attack. with 4 # 1 days to go until the election, new polls show the president with a co
on when dealing with al qaeda specifically and terrorism and foreign policy and this was frankly a disaster for the united states and a terrible tragedy so they see this as a way to criticize some of the president's policies in the region. >> brown: steven lee myers, daniel byman, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: now to our american graduate series on the high school dropout problem. tonight, we explore the pressures on a public school system in a city that's unexpectedly benefiting from economic good times. ray suarez has our story from north dakota. >> reporter: there is no better economic view in the u.s. than the one seen from above williston, north dakota. a rapidly expanding oil boom has taken root below, bringing with it widespread prosperity and an unemployment rate that sits at just 1%. this city's fortunes are in stark contrast to most of the nation. real estate is profitable. blue collar jobs are abundant. and much of the globe, including asia, the middle east and europe, is investing in the local economy. but as opportunities and new residents pour in, it
, and in many cases, the u.s. was reacting as often happens in foreign policy. the arab spring isn't something that necessarily the u.s. has control over. >> that said, our experience tells us whether it's the east africa embassy bombings or "u.s.s. cole" in places where that are ungoverned or poorly governed, yemen, libya, because of a weak central government, there is a vacuum. al qaeda has the wherewithal to take advantage of that. al qaeda looks for safe havens around the world and it seems, appears now, that's exactly what al qaeda was doing with libya, trying to insert themselves where it was a weak or ungoverned space and take advantage of it to our great detriment. >> fran townsend, thank you very much. >>> other news tonight, what was likely his last visit with the u.n. general assembly, mahmoud ahmadinejad called for a new world order. as he was speaking, rudy giuliani blasted president obama for not taking stronger action. former mayor giuliani joins me, ahead. e i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas
questions. people need answers. this foreign-policy mass, -- mess, he always watns transparency. host: you're in a swing state. are you seeing a lot of commercials? caller: i go back and forth between denver and the suburbs. when they go out and do the polls, they're finding out that they're asking more democrats and coming back with a 10 point lead. from what i've seen, they're trying to go back to the 2008 turn out. host: that was got from colorado springs. up next in oregon on the democratic line. caller: it's nice to talk to you today. thank you for taking my call. the media tries to interject their opinions into the politics of what's going on today. i do not care whether that is republican or democrat. i think the media has this about their ability to be neutral. one of the examples that i would give is to checked politifact. whenever they give up facts about the president and romney -- did he really do that stuff? then instead of coming back, if obama is not 100% on a point, they will find some way or some small percentage to show that he was not exactly a perfectly right therefore
personal relationships do matter in foreign policy. and there was an article in "the new york times" yesterday which caught our eye here. it had a quote from a middle east official. it said, you can't fix these problems by remote control. president obama doesn't have friends who are world leaders. he doesn't believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames. you can't accomplish what you want to accomplish with such an impersonal style. do you agree the president has an impersonal style? >> not at all. i think he has met extensively with his counterparts. when you look at bibi netanyahu, i don't think there's a world leader he's met with more. he picked up the phone, they had an hour long conversation. this is a scheduling income patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relati
, centrist foreign policy. i think you're foreign policy is good. >> when you look at politics, it does seem that both parties have wings that have broken off in different directions. you have the streextreme left a right and their voices have gotten louder. >> i'm a centrist democrat. i'd like to see the party probably move a little more to the center. but i think if there's not some real action after the election, you're going to see the emergence of a strong independent party. i'm not if for that. but i think the voters are sending the message they want things worked out. >> but in terms of the fiscal cliff, what are we talking about? >> there not be panic right after the election when they deal with the debt agreement, the defense spending not be cut dramatically, that we deal with the bowles-simpson, the debt issue. i think you'll see some kind of compromise right after the election from both parties. i'm a minority opinion here. but i think the american people have a strange way of saying enough of this and we want some changes. and it's going to happen. >> i've been surprised that it
